SLSG MO ECNL U17 players Hadley Cytron and Anna Lawler have been invited to participate in the ECNL/id2 National Training Camp, July 27th - July 31st. The camp will be held at the University of Portland in Portland, OR and will include the top 90 players from 1999 - 2001 from across the country.
The ECNL National Training Camp is a joint program between the ECNL, Nike, and US Club Soccer. The camp is part of the National Identification and Development Program.
"I was so pleased for Hadley and Anna to be invited. Both players along with others from the U17 team had a tremendous ECNL season for the club," said Ralph Richards, Elite Program Director. "This was just icing on the cake for these two young ladies."
Paige Brown (95), Sarah Luebbert (97), Kayleigh Stahlschmidt (98) and Kirsten Davis (99), have all attended the ECNL / id2 Nike National Camp in previous years.
"As a player in the ECNL this should be an individual goal," added Richards. "To represent yourself, your family and your club against the best ECNL players from across the country is a huge achievement and an opportunity for these young ladies to perform on a National stage."
Unfortunately Anna Lawler is unable to attend, but Hadley Cytron, a student at Ladue High School, will be attending and we wish her all the best.
"I could not be more excited for Hadley, this invitation is a true sign of respect from the league and the opponents who have recognized her performance throughout the 2016/17 season. This camp is a true collection of the best players in the country and Hadley, in my opinion, is absolutely deserving to be included. Her consistent work in training and impact in the games complimented and contributed to a team that was certainly one of the ECNL's most outstanding this year. I know Hadley will represent SLSG with class and make all of us proud."
"I'm really looking forward to attending the 2017 id2 National Training Camp in Portland," said Hadley Cytron. "It will be a great opportunity for me to learn and grow as a player while gaining additional exposure to top-level training and coaches. I'm also very excited to be playing against elite competition and to have fun playing the sport I love."
